John is a proud Pakana man, born in Hobart and is the son of Leonie Dickson nephew to Aunty Verna Nichols and great Grandson of Ila ( Aunty Girlie) Purdon. John has always been interested in art and this year is his first time being part of an exhibition.
Through his life he has watched his family produce traditional as well as contemporary Tasmanian Aboriginal Art and always had the desire to do his own and showcase this to his family and friends. Even though he had not touched any or produced wood work art since his days in high school john had always wanted to try his hand and to see what transpired. John feels thankful that through this exhibition he has been given a opportunity to create new work and hopes that it brings as much joy to others as it has to him.
